Never underestimate Taylor Swift: just because she’s not showing off her diamonds or her sick rides on social media doesn’t meant she’s not baller. In reality, she might be more baller than most rappers out there.
While Swift’s Instagram feed is packed with photos of her kittens or of her doing very relatable stuff like drinking wine or baking goods, at an estimated net worth of $400 million, she is one of the richest singers in the world. Sure, she sings about fluffy stuff like falling in and out of love, and has a reputation for writing revenge music against the exes who dumped her, but look where it’s gotten her.

Until March this year, her personal fleet included no less than two private planes, a Dassault Falcon 50 and a much larger Dassault-Breguet Mystere Falcon 900. And they weren’t borrowed like Drake’s Boeing 767 (about which he boasted as being a personal purchase): she bought them both, the former in 2012 and the latter in 2011.

In March, as most of the U.S. was heading into full lockdown and all non-essential travel was banned (including touring for music concerts), Taylor sold the smaller plane, TMZ has uncovered – and confirmed with FAA documentation. Previously registered with SATA LLC in Nashville, believed to be one of Taylor’s companies, it now belongs to a company named BoneDoc Aviation LLC.

Pricing for one such small plane ranges between $1 million and $6 million, while maintenance costs are estimated at $2 million a year.

When Swift is able to hit the road again, she will still do so in the comfort of her own private jet: the Falcon 900 is a trijet that can carry up to 19 passengers and 2 crew, so it’s more spacious than the Falcon 50. The singer paid a reported $40 million on it, and then had it customized with a #13 decal at the front. For those not in the know, 13 is Taylor’s lucky number.
